In one of Terry Pratchett's books can be found a wonderful, bleak commentary on law, to the effect that laws are created for "the people of (name) Street" - who are too stupid to realize that powerful people ignore law and law only penalizes those who obey it.

The name of the street is something like "Cockbill" or "Coopersmith" and my inability to remember the exact name proves I'm getting old...

Thanks for any help.

It's Cockbill Street and it's from Pratchett's Feet of Clay, p. 198.
